Our understanding of schizophrenia has increased substantially in recent years. This is due to technological advances that have improved our ability to assess neuropsychiatric function and the genetic underpinnings of the disease. While diagnostic classification still relies on the presentation of the more overt symptoms of the disease, the neuropsychiatric perspective provides a more accurate and comprehensive understanding of the illness. This perspective provides insight into the etiology and treatment of schizophrenia. This article provides an overview of schizophrenia from the broad viewpoint of neuropsychiatry.
